SAP Note 2890213 addresses "[CVE-2020-6207] Missing Authentication Check in SAP Solution Manager (User-Experience Monitoring)" to prevent missing authentication check with a hot news risk for exploitation.

A workaround does exist, according to SAP Security Advisory team. It is advisable to implement the correction as part of maintenance, the team suggests.
